Like a television held on freeze-frame for far too long, the ory no'man too leave an impression. Anyone who catches these two playing a show is sure to have an imprint left within them, and bound to keep coming back for more -- their high energy performance blends psychedelic harp-lines and intensely rhythmic acoustic guitar with bombastic bass-lines, and multi-tonal mandolin swirls, served with a sense of urgency and style. Driven like a deal with the devil, the duo holds strong influences in some mighty predecessors, bringing a cryptic lyrical wit akin to that which has made Bob Dylan timeless, and an urgency of emotion like a Jeff Buckley song, and a strong spattering of spirits like Woodie Guthrie and Richie Havens.

Calling Toronto their home in the winter, and Banff, AB their home in the summer, the ory no'man too consists of ory no'man bringing the vocals, guitar and blues harp, and Jason Skiendziel on the upright bass, and mandolin. The duo keeps a frantic and relentless schedule. They've completed numerous cross-Canada tours, played at some of the country's best venues, and have been showcased at numerous festivals from BC to QC and everywhere in between. Some notables include: 2008 North by Northeast Festival (NXNE), Toronto's 2008 Winterfolk Festival, The 2008, and 2007 North Country Fair in northern Alberta, 2008 Brandon Folk Festival, 2008 ArtsWells Festival in Northern BC, Toronto's 2006 City Roots Citywide festival, playing a showcase for Canadian Music Week 2007, playing the after-party for the Western Canadian Music Awards, many live to air radio sessions on CIUT 89.5 (University of Toronto), and an appearance on IndieCan Radio.

The studio is next in sight for the ory no'man too. The duo has just received numerous grants from FACTOR, and are going to be working with Award winning producer John Switzer (Jane Siberry, The Waltons and Nathan).
